Free Online Parish Register Search

We have now made available an online searchable database of all the parish registers we have indexed so far, plus some additional material not yet published in book form. The records we have indexed are taken from Kirk Session material of the Church of Scotland and other Presbyterian churches. They are not part of the Church of Scotland Old Parish Registers (or OPRs) as found on the Scotland's People site. They therefore contain many records of births, marriages and deaths which are not to be found anywhere else. Click here to see current database coverage.

Free Online Prison Record Search

We have now made available an online searchable database for all the prison registers we have indexed so far. For coverage details, please see the coverage page on our new site. This index should enable you to identify someone in the records and get the relevant reference so that you can obtain more information. Further information, such as the crime, can be found in our prison index books.

Free Online Paternity Case Search

We have now made available an online searchable database for paternity cases in Scottish Sheriff Courts. These include a few other aliment cases concerning desertion as well as some breach of promise to marry cases.

For coverage details, please see the href="../coveragecourt.aspx">coverage page on our new site.

Cases after 1916 have not been added to the index for privacy reasons, but will be added on an annual basis in future years. Other years and new Sheriff Courts will soon be added, so please keep checking this page for updates. We gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Margaret Hamilton in this indexing project.
